Hotstel was okay and the rooms were quite clean. We had a pretty good time at the hostel, though i felt like some of the travellers were really rude. I liked the pubcrawl that the hostel provided and it was a good that they had breakfast included. I guess i would have liked the hostel more if I wouldn't have... More

My fiance and I stayed here while traveling through Europe. We've stayed in many hostels all over Europe, but honestly, this was one of the worst. We are really disappointed that we feel this way as we've heard so many good things about it and were looking forward to it. Firstly, the assignment of beds was really weird. Even although... More

brilliant place to stay, great location, don't need to get the tram anywhere if you don't mind the walk, staff nice, rooms clean, showers hot! share a double bed with a friend/partner and it's cheaper!

The Flying Pig was AWSOME! Me and my boyfriend stayed in the private room which was on the top floor (there are 60 steep steps, but we are young and that it no problem for us...plus I was building my butt muscels every time I walked to our room). All people (staff and others staying at the hostel) were as... More

Was here for a small vacation and it's a great place. The room are clean and every morning the personnel takes care of them. The cost is great for students, really convenient. Finally, the people who work here are very friendly and the environment is great. Great to meet new people, especially in the bar near the entrance where you... More

Every time I stay at the flying pig uptown I always end up doing mushrooms with strangers from all around the world haha. Stayed there last month for my second time, the vibe in this place is like no other, everyone is chilled out and easy to get on with. It's a little way from the centre so I recommend... More

When I went to the flying pig, I had never been to hostel before and I was kind of nervous because I didn’t know what to expect from it. I reached Amsterdam at 9pm and after dinner I got onto the tram and went towards the hostel. I entered the hostel at about 11 pm and was warmly greeted by... More

great place to stay with friends. Ample breakfast and helpful staff. Location is not that excellent, but reachable even by foot in 30 to 45 mins from the central station. Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis, though quilts were not changed after use, and to my knowledge not washed. None the less, it was an excellent location to stay... More
